David Tennant is believed to be recording Romeo and Juliet for Radio Three's Shakespeare Season this week. However the BBC Radio Drama newsletter said that the play is already in production and David only has a small part in it so it's possible that he has already recorded his lines. David is playing Prince Escalus who is the mediator of the feuding families. Escalus is the voice of authority in Verona. He appears only three times to administer justice following major events in the feud between the Capulet and Montague families. However keep listening until the end of the play as the final speech of Romeo and Juliet is by the Prince and it ends "For never was a story of more woe than this of Juliet and her Romeo." Updated 13/2

Today's BBC Radio Drama newsletter confirms that David Tennant will be Prince Escalus in the BBC Radio Three production of Romeo and Juliet. They also confirm that David Tennant is in two Shakespeare plays for BBC Radio Three Shakespeare Season which will be broadcast in April. The cast are recording Romeo and Juliet this coming week (the balcony scene is appropriately being recorded on Valentine's Day) and Twelfth Night will be recorded the following week. Updated 10/2
